Causes, Fashion, Oman, USF store
So Eid is coming up which means this is the perfect opportunity to add a few new items for your ever expanding wardrobe!
And now I have just the place…
The USF store is now OPEN!
Looking for a fancy evening bag? Comfy shoes for the office? A summer dress or maybe a classy party piece? Look no further…
The store is located in Zakher Mall (home to Pan Furniture, Omantel, Body Shop) in Al Khuwair. Venture up to the second floor and the USF store will be just on your right. Opening times are from 10am to 1pm and then from 4pm to 8pm everyday! There is a lovely lady managing the store who will be more than happy to show you around and help you find just what you are looking for! The clothes/bags/shoes were all handpicked in Italy by my mom and I have personally been wearing one of the wedges from the shop for over 2 months now and they are super comfy!
Here are a few shots of what the store has to offer(excuse the quality, I was just very eager to get these to you as soooooon as possible!):
More images to come soon, meanwhile please visit the store as I am certain you will find something you will fall in love with!

Today after work I suggest you abandon plans to head home and flop in front of the entertainment box and hurry instead to an art exhibition that showcases young local talants:
And whilst you are feeling uppity and inspirited also check out this funky photography exhibition…

To tell you the truth, I don’t know much about autism and I am a little ashamed of my own ignorance. That’s why when I saw an advertisement for a walk to raise awareness of autism, I jumped at the opportunity to participate. Since the advertisement offered a limited amount of information I contacted the organizers and a few days later they were kind enough to get back to me with more details.
The walk will begin at Bareeq AlShatti at 4pm and will continue to Al Qurum Park. At the park the organizers plan to host a concert complete with activities for children, food will also be sold at the venue.
On the 2nd of April and exhibition will take place at City Center Qurum where paintings will be sold and fun activities conducted. The money we raise from selling the shirts, food, paintings..etc will go to the Association of Early Intervention for Children with Disability which is in AL-Athaibah, as the organizers are trying to contribute in anyway to help them build a new centre.
Najla Al-Futaisi is one of the organizers of the event and she is looking to help many families with children with this disorder who are not aware of its existence.
We can all make-do with contributing to a worthy cause such as this one. Hope to see you join the walk on the 1st of April.
